World Getting Dumber

... IQ's Drop 15 Points

As the world gets more complicated and machines are getting smarter it appears that people are getting dumber ...

According to a worldwide report released today by the Giddyup Poll, the average IQ of the world's population has dropped by 15 points in the last decade. A decade ago the world's average IQ was 107. Today, it is 92.

The steep drop is attributed largely to the astonishing advances in electronics; amazing gizmos such as cell phones, digital cameras, tablets, big screen TV's, home computers and other machines. These machines are not particularly user friendly, are quite complicated and are designed to be operated only by someone with a degree in engineering. Less than 50% of digital camera owners can take a decent picture and all the people who don't have a working anti-virus program on their computer are really really dumb.

According to the Giddyup Poll, the World IQ political findings also reveals that 88% of left-wing liberals in the U.S. do not use their brain at all. Instead, they rely totally on "feelings" for their political beliefs, choosing to ignore both facts and reality.

The World IQ Poll clearly proves what many of you have always thought: as you get older it's not that you are getting any smarter, it's that everyone else is getting dumber.

The above headline and story is not true. It was made up, by the author, solely as comedy, with no intent to harm or offend. Any of it which turns out to be true, in whole or in part, is purely coincidental ... and would be even funnier.
